5-Year-Old takes stand before Allahabad HC: Files PIL against liquor shop near school

In a heartwarming display of courage and determination, a 5-year-old boy named Atharv from Kanpur has taken a unique step forward to address a pressing issue affecting his education and that of his fellow classmates. Despite his tender age, Atharv has taken the bold step of filing a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) with the help of his family in the Allahabad High Court, drawing attention to the disruptive presence of a liquor shop near his school.

Located just 20 meters away from Seth M.R. Jaipuria School in Azad Nagar, Kanpur, the liquor shop has been a source of constant disturbance for the young students. Atharv, a student of LKG, along with his family members, has raised concerns about the chaos caused by drunkards gathering near the school premises, particularly during the early hours of the morning.

Despite repeated complaints lodged by Atharv's family to local authorities and the Uttar Pradesh government, no concrete action has been taken to address the issue. The school, which opened its doors in 2019, finds itself in close proximity to a liquor shop with a contract spanning approximately 30 years. This stark incongruity raises questions about the renewal of the liquor shop's contract and the lack of consideration for the safety and well-being of the school children.

The gravity of the situation prompted Atharv and his family to seek recourse through legal means. With the assistance of his relatives, Atharv filed a PIL in the Allahabad High Court, bringing the matter to the attention of the judiciary.

The case, heard before the division bench of Justice Manoj Kumar Gupta and Justice Kshitij Shailendra, has prompted the court to summon the Uttar Pradesh government and inquire about the rationale behind allowing the liquor shop to operate in such close proximity to a school.

The court's intervention underscores the significance of Atharv's plea and the urgency of addressing the issue at hand. By scheduling a further hearing on March 13, the court has signaled its commitment to ensuring the safety and security of students and upholding their right to education in a conducive environment.
